Journal Entry by Warren Mortomore

S – Scripture: Genesis 1:1 (NKJV)
‘In the beginning God.’

O - Observation
Everything commences with God, by God and for God.

A - Application
This one short line determines my destiny.  Does God have 1st place in my heart, my life, my family, my decisions, my finances, my plans?  By placing God in 1st place at the beginning of this year, I am saying that I cannot make it without you, I need you, I submit to you, and I ask for your wisdom in everything I am called to do as a husband, father, man, leader.

P - Prayer
Lord Jesus, I honour You, and at the start of this new year, I surrender to you and ask you to be the Lord of my life. Have 1st place in my heart.  I declare that I cannot make it through today, let alone this year without You.  I begin this year with You at the center of my life. I ask for your blessing and favour on my life, my family, my finances, my future and my church.
